The Arts Gives Students A Better Understanding

PPE at Paige’s Music

We are excited and encouraged to see so many students gearing up for back-to-school and joining band and orchestra! While things certainly look a little different this year, there is one thing that remains the same; the positive, life changing experiences your students will gain by participating in music. Our team is ready to assist and support you and your student in any way possible!

In saying that, we have added some new products to our website. These items have been designed by our manufacturer partners to help mitigate the spread of aerosols from wind instruments. You can view the complete and detailed list here.

As always, if there is anything we can do for you during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out!

Students In Music Lessons Show Higher Intelligence
